Basepaws Brings World's First Cat DNA Test to CES 2019

DNA test lets you find out which breed(s) your cat is.

Basepaws presents a DNA test for cats at the CES 2019. Basepaws offers direct-to-consumer DNA testing for cats, focusing on delivering breed information and actionable health insights. The startup sells the Basepaws Cat DNA Test for $95.

Each test reveals the genetic breakdown of the cat, with results that tell you what breeds your cat's DNA contains, and even if any wild cat genes are part of the mix. As more owners add to the growing database, future reports will be able to link results with potential diseases and nutrition needs.

"DNA research has revealed a vast amount of useful, often life-saving information for humans. We want to facilitate those same kinds of breakthroughs for cats," said Anna Skaya, Founder and CEO of Basepaws. "Our reports connect owners with insights about their cat's breed. The technology is there to change how we approach our beloved pets' well-being."

Each cat has different nutritional needs. A simple DNA test can make it easier to identify which traits are linked to health conditions like heart disease and obesity. As this information becomes available, Basepaws' updated reports can save pet owners the time and cost of trial and error, using veterinary research to shed light on the best foods for certain breeds.

The CES 2019 will take place January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show is the world’s largest and most influential technology event, featuring 4,500 exhibitors across 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space. The hottest trends of CES 2019 include 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented and virtual reality, mobility, smart home, smart cities, sports tech and more. Most of the CES 2019 announcements will be released ahead of the show in late December and early January. The next wave of news comes during the CES media days on January 6-7, when news conferences and keynotes are scheduled. Read the latest CES 2019 News.

Basepaws is poised to become a community where cat owners, veterinarians and breeders can help one another in caring for their feline friends. With a growing database of brand-new information, genetic testing is a game-changer in the pet industry, and will aid the eradication of preventable, fatal diseases for our furry companions everywhere.
